That's the spirit, save Elizabeth! Way to go, Steve!

Re: Is my TRACS-system broken?

TRACS is barely felt compared to modern Traction Control systems. My Turbos spin the wheels if I want to, no matter what TRACS does. I can hear it working, though. It kinda sounds like winding up a spring in a windup car.

Re: Donor car compatability Topic is solved

I think the Rs in the early years are the same as far as the tranny goes. Might have changed later with the AWD Rs.
I think the early Rs just got the rims, front lip, nice interior and a different tune.
This is for AT Rs only. MT Rs got M4.4, the special tranny and 16T.

Re: How to diagnose a suspicious transmission?

+1 on the drain and fill. This fixed weird symptoms on my 96 R (4spd, though).
It's a cheap fix if it works

Re: P80 cars in the snow

I'm in envy because of all that white powder and the rims on your T4, Steve.

I had that pressure hose pop off at the intercooler side once. Barely made it to the next turnout before the car stalled.

Re: Yakazi instrument cluster: clock and temp gone Topic is solved

Okay, so I eventually fixed the problem by getting a used 9442045 display unit. Now everything works again (knock on wood). 2 things worth mentioning: 1). Until I removed my old display, the lightbulb of the display unit worked fine. After putting this bulb into the new display unit that came withou...

Re: Turbo and Downpipes??

Why on earth do they do that? Reusing old gas might work, but what do you do with an old cat? scrap metal? The internals are worth $$$. This is why you constantly hear about them being stolen off of people's cars. Interesting. Never heard about that on my side of the pond. But what was common here ...
